BILL NUMBER:  SB 387
  VETOED	DATE: 08/06/2009




To the Members of the California State Senate:

I am returning Senate Bill 387 without my signature.

The provisions of this bill allowing elections officials to process
ballots that contain extraneous non-identifying marks are acceptable;
however, I am concerned that remaking a ballot that contains
personal identifying information compromises ballot secrecy and
increases the opportunity for fraud.

For this reason I am unable to sign this bill.

Sincerely,



Arnold Schwarzenegger
